The Scottish Rite Temple is a historic site in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is noted for its unique appearance, covered in pink stucco that has always been its color from its completion a century ago.

Commissioned by the Scottish Rite organization, the Scottish Rite Temple started in 1909 when the local architect Isaac H. Rapp was chosen to design the new Scottish Rite Cathedral. However, his designs were scrapped, so the Los Angeles architectural firm Hunt and Burns were employed instead. The group made up this Moorish Revival style structure, inspired by the Court of the Lions in Spain. However, Rapp still gets to be erroneously credited for the design of the structure quite often.

Also known as the Santa Fe Lodge of Perfection and the Scottish Rite Cathedral, the Scottish Rite Temple is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
